There’s nothing quite like the Elephant beer on a hot day. I just wish I could find it back home.[/center] [center][u][b]Boddington’s Pub Ale[/b][/u][/center] [center][img]http://fistfightatthearthouse.files.wordpress.com/2009/08/boddingtons-pub-ale1.jpg[/img][/center] [center]This is one of those beers that really provides a full bodied experience with some nice froth on the top. I actually prefer it to Guinness; it’s just too bad I can only find it locally at one bar where I live.[/center] [center][u][b]Blue Moon Belgian White[/b][/u][/center] [center][img]http://maunderingme.files.wordpress.com/2009/12/blue-moon-pale-ale.jpg[/img][/center] [center]I first found this beer when in college and to this day it’s the only one that I’ll allow citrus fruit to get near. I don’t even use a lime in Corona, just a slice of orange in the Blue Moon. It’s lighter than some of the other beers I drink, but can still stand up to a discerning palate.[/center] [center][center][u][b]Dinkel Acker[/b][/u][/center][/center] [center][img]http://www.gotbeer.com/content/user_1/lDinkelAckerSixPack.jpg[/img][/center] [center]This is German beer at its finest. I discovered this during college as well (I’m beginning to see a pattern emerge here) on a night out with some of my teammates, one of whom was from southern Germany. This was his favorite and quickly became one of mine as well. Until then I had no idea what a good German beer tasted like. I must say I found this one nice and crisp, which makes it perfect for consumption in larger quantities than some of the others I enjoy.[/center] [center][center][u][b]Amstel Light[/b][/u][/center][/center] [center][img]http://www.adrants.com/images/amstel-dam-good-bier.jpg[/img][/center] [center]I think I remember something about no light beers, but this one is such a personal favorite of mine, that I can’t leave it out. I can’t go through this set of reviews without a tribute to the Dutch so here it is. This is so nice and crisp when it’s chilled properly, that it almost makes up for the quite low alcohol content. This is the sort of beer you keep stocked if you plan on having a lot of people over, good enough for a party, not quite good enough to accompany a good steak. It’s at the bottom of my list of 5 for a reason, but still makes the cut as it beats out all other light beers I’ve found.[/center] Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
